Alvechurch Dramatic Society

Alvechurch Dramatic Society presents The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde at Alvechurch Village Hall on April 25, 26 and 27, all at 7.30pm.

For the first time in the group’s 65-year history, they will perform Wilde’s classic ‘trivial comedy for serious people’. 

“How we’ve managed to miss out on this comedy masterpiece for all these years is anyone’s guess, but we’re happy to be rectifying the situation!” says Chris Davies.

The play follows the misadventures of Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, who must deal with the Gorgon that is Lady Bracknell as they court their sweethearts Gwendolen and Cecily, both of whom seem to think they are engaged to someone named Ernest…

 “The first act is ingenious, the second beautiful, the third abominably clever”, said Wilde himself with characteristic modesty.

Featuring all of his famous wit, farcical comedy and sparkling dialogue – plus some cucumber sandwiches and a very well known handbag – the show has deservedly won its place among the classics!  

Tickets £6 (£5 conc), available from Alvechurch Post Office, The Joshua Tree, or on 0121 447 7071.

Pictured: Martin Salter (Algernon Moncrieff), Susan Resuggan (Lady Bracknell), Adrian Perry (Dr Chasuble), and Chris Davies (Jack Worthing).
